MANY THANKS to all who visited and commented on my last image "Moon Setting Over Amish Farm." I was surprised and delighted to receive a Spotlight.
The daffodils have been blooming for several weeks. I love their yellow cheerfulness amidst the browns of early spring.
I used several of my own textures, and one from Coffee Shop.

Daffodils can look so happy to be here no matter where they find themselves to be. You have somehow caught the serious side here, too . . all the effort they put into the Big Moment.

@Ronnie 2¢: You noticed that I'm a serious type person. :-)
